LAURENCE JUBER - As a
young working musician in London, England in the 1970s, Laurence Juber got an
extraordinary, life-changing break when Paul McCartney picked him to become
Wings’ lead guitarist. Juber spent three years recording and touring with the
band. During that time he won a Best Rock Instrumental GRAMMY® for the track "Rockestra"
from the Wings album, "Back To The Egg."
After Wings folded in 1981, Juber embarked on a career as a solo artist,
composer and arranger, and soon developed a reputation as a world-class guitar
virtuoso, being voted #1 by Fingerstyle Guitar magazine. He has released 14
critically acclaimed solo albums, including "LJ Plays the Beatles","Guitarist"
and "PCH". "I've Got The World On 6 Strings", is a collection of solo guitar
arrangements of classic tunes by Harold Arlen.
Juber's DVD "Guitar Noir" is DVD Etc. magazine's top pick for surround-sound 5.1
audio and earned a 2005 CEA "Demmy" award for sonic excellence. His solo guitar
arrangement of "The Pink Panther Theme" is featured on the Best Pop Instrumental
GRAMMY®-winning album "Henry Mancini-Pink Guitar". His arrangement of “Stand By
Me” was featured in the “Diamonds Are Forever” TV commercial.
Folios and DVDs of his compositions and arrangements are published by Alfred
Publications. The venerable C.F. Martin Company currently offers an ‘LJ’
Signature model guitar and GHS Strings market Juber's Signature guitar strings.
His latest release “Wooden Horses” showcases LJ’s composing for solo guitar.
